Om arrangementet

Financial Rules of Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe (1 dag) – Nivå 2

Kurset gir deg en detaljert gjennomgang av økonomireglene i Horisont 2020 og Horisont Europa, og vi gjennomgår hvilke kostnader som er godkjente og hvilke som ikke er det. Vi snakker om ulike måter å beregne personalkostnader på, og viser hvilke andre godkjente kostnader som kan inngå og hvordan disse beregnes (f.eks. reisekostnader, utstyr og internfakturerte kostnader). På slutten av kurset gjennomgår vi hvordan en prosjektrevisjon gjennomføres.

Kurset holdes på engelsk, og kursleder er Europa Media.
